PGA Australia has praised the Corowa Golf Club's courage in hosting The Murray Open.
Corowa staged the 36-hole tournament last Tuesday and Wednesday, attracting a quality pro field, which included three-time European Tour winner Marcus Fraser.
"I think the best thing was with everything going on with COVID, the vibe from the club was so positive, they really wanted to run something like this for us, we had encountered clubs which were a bit sceptical, but Corowa was really accommodating, which was fantastic," national tournament coordinator Peter Welden explained.

The $50,000 tournament is part of the NSW Regional series, with Concord's Josh Armstrong snaring his maiden title on 14-under, while Corowa club pro James Gordon was tied for fifth.
"That's an amazing effort, he's playing against full-timers on the circuit and some would be playing all over the world, but for COVID."
